Puck
i. Originally, hockey pucks were made of wood, then glued-together pieces of rubber. In Nova Scotia, from 1800 to the 1940s, there were lots of horse-drawn wagons on the streets. In freezing weather there were always lots of frozen well-formed horse droppings that the kids would use in street hockey. They called them horse-apples, horse-buns or horse-puckies.
ii. The modern puck is made of vulcanised rubber and is one inch (2.54 cm) thick and three inches (7.62 cm) in diameter. It weighs about 6 ounces. It is frozen for several hours before a game to minimise bouncing (see puck temperature). Some professional players regularly shoot the puck at speeds of 90-100 miles per hour. Speeds of up to 120 miles per hour have been recorded by some of the best shooters in ice hockey.
iii. The entire puck must cross the goal line for a goal to be scored.
iv. In 1900, Fred C Waghorne refereed a game where a puck split in two and one half ended up in the goal, after much deliberation he ruled it as 'no goal' because the official definition of a puck included specific dimensions and since the piece of rubber in the goal did not meet these specifications, it could not be a puck. He therefore instituted the rule that the entire puck must cross the line for a goal to count.
vi. Puck was the name of a short lived 16 page hockey magazine published in the UK during the 1982-83 season - there were five issues. The magazine was edited by Phil Drackett.

Puck temperature
Pucks have to be kept in a frozen condition before a game. The host team is responsible for supplying sufficient pucks for a game. Most teams freeze 60 pucks before a game at around 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Then before each period, 20 of those pucks are brought to the rink, where they're kept chilled in buckets of ice until required.
